Default Most memorable person

Who (or what, in some cases) is the most memorable person you have either seen or met on any cruise you've been on.

Mine were the slipper people a few years ago on Holland America Volendam. They had at least 12 pair of slippers...each (cartoon or animal slippers) that they wore all over the ship........and yes, even to formal nights, around the pool, and everywhere.

Most memorable persons I ever met on a cruise are our own Ray and Helen. Always on the go they have been to so many interesting places. Ray is always organising activities for CruiseMates. They are always welcoming and gracious to everyone.

On my very first cruise back in 1985, I met a couple from California. Roy and Fran. They were professional ballroom dancers. I was fascinated. Loved to watch them dance every night. They had been all over the world, and I remember them telling me the most beautiful sunset they had ever seen was in Rio. They had been on a cruise and were up on deck watching it leave port.

The most memorable person on my cruise would be Cruise Director Mark Price. He was so hilarious and energetic and such an excellent character.

The most memorable people for me were two women who sat at my table for formal dining. Best friends cruising together. The acted so sweet and proper at the table, But I caught them several times on the lido deck quite tipsy, and in Cozumel as well. What was funny about it was how they said they weren't really drinking much on the cruise, and I brought up when I saw them, they got all embarrased and were doing the shush finger motion. It was all in good fun, but seeing two older women( both were probably in their 50s) that were trying to sneek in drinking on a cruise ship was way too cute.

I resemble that remark! But I don't sneak... and I take my DH, who IS my best friend!

The most memorable person I've seen on a cruise was a woman who dressed like a fortune teller all the time. Her DH and DS dressed "normally". Now I wish I'd met her. She was probably a very interesting person!

Also memorable (but not in a good way) was the young couple who were married on the ship. He was a *******! He kept ordering her around and complaining if she ate more than a few bites of food (she was almost anorexic as it was) . It was so sad to watch. I hope that she's gotten away from him by now.
